The season took off in early September with the arrival of Chilean flagged Stella Australis, and its 210 passengers heading for Cape Horn

    I wonder if they have stocked up on tyres to burn, just in case there is a 'Malvinas' ship in dock.

    Monkeys, time for school:

    A recession is a short economic contraction of over two (2) consecutive quarters' duration.

    That thing that you keep trying [unsuccessfully] to attribute /insert into my original post is a larger economic contraction of more than two (2) years' duration.

    A post recessionary recovery (or non-recovery in this case) is one that follows a R E C E S S I O N.

    Are you really this ignorant Monkeys or are you so dishonest as to attempt(unsuccessfully) a Saul Alinsky style question modification?

    Huh? Dumb or intellectually dishonest? Which is it? You can't win the question so you try to confuse the audience and name call.

    In addition to the two(2) aforementioned areas there are at least a dozen others that distinguish my nominee as the worst of all time.

    Do you wish to continue? I do!
